What to Expect with Your Divorce Case
divorce process is not an easy process. It is important to know what to expect
and how to best deal with the complications that arise. Here is a basic
overview of the process so you are aware of where this is headed:
Filing the divorce complaint - Either party will need to file a divorce
complaint with the court to get the process started. This will need to
include the grounds of the complaint, whether fault or no fault based.
A counterclaim will be filed - The other party will then answer with a
counterclaim or a general appearance.
Filing of a Case Information Statement - Next, both parties will file a
Case Information Statement. This will include financial information about
both parties. It will also include requests for financial support.
Settlement agreement - At some point, whether before or after filing the
complaint, the parties may try to reach a settlement agreement. If no
settlement is reached, the parties will attend an Early Settlement Panel.
Economic mediation - In most cases, economic mediation will be attempted
to come to an agreement on financial matters of the divorce. If this cannot
be accomplished through mediation, however, the parties will attend an
Intensive Settlement Conference.
Trial - If no agreement can be reached through the above process, trial
will then begin.
